Forum: oldtimeradio Subject: Jerry of the Circus

I have been listening to these episodes, I'm up to chapter 71 and I reconize some of the actors from The Cinnamon Bear. The kid who played Jimmy is Tom, Buddy Duncan, The Cinnamon Bear plays Major Mike. Joseph Kerns, Crazy Quilt plays El Mundo the Elephant's Trainer, Joe Duval plays Mr. Randall, Is Bumps played by Howard McNear? It kinda sounds like him. Is there any other actors from the Cinnamon Bear that anyone else can reconize?

It's been a while since I've listened to the Cinnamon Bear, but I do remember that the bear was Major Mike. I've also noticed a lot of the same actors showing up time and time again in many of the syndicated shows. For instance, Mr. Randall from JOTC shows up as various characters in Freedom Fighters, Family Doctor and Police Headquarters (the kindly Mr. Randall as a criminal or hard boiled cop is pretty interesting), the person playing Bumps and Mac in the next series Jerry at Fair Oaks shows up in Family Doctor. Even some of the transition music is used in these various series. Makes me wonder if it was one production company supplying all these shows to the syndication market, or actors that got a lot of work.
